Turkey's first Kurdish-language search engine has gone online after five years of research and development.

Serdar Anustekin, the site’s manager, told Anadolu Agency on Thursday that the company behind ‘Serketin’ [‘success’ in Kurdish] would also launch a Kurdish-language video-sharing site in the coming months.

Speaking at Anadolu Agency's regional directorate in Diyarbakir, Anustekin said: "Currently our site has been broadcasting in all languages. Our aim was to include other languages spoken in Turkey like Laz, Zazaki [spoken by Zaza Kurds] and Armenian."

He said that he started the project – www.serketin.com – in 2010 and completed it in 2015 so that people could speak in their own language and introduce their own culture.
